Four members came away with their second First Place win in the second year of Best in Class. Repeat winners include World Vision, Answers, Common Good and Luke Society News. Congratulations are also in order for first-time First Place winners: Brio, Christian History, Mission Frontiers, Word&Way, The Christian Chronicle, Cru Storylines and Fathom.
First-pace winners will each receive an engraved crystal trophy.
The summer contest groups magazines in categories based on circulation rather than type as judged in the annual Awards of Excellence. Entries were split with a balanced number of entries into seven circulation ranges, plus additional categories based on format: newsletters, newspapers and websites (which required a digital membership to enter). Each category was judged by two judges with the judges’ scores averaged to determine placement.
